Federal Judge Unseals Secret Surveillance Records

A federal judge has ordered the public release of 235 sealed records of government surveillance in response to a request from a journalist.  EPIC has urged greater transparency of these "pen register and trap and trace" orders. As a result of a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit  against the Justice Department, EPIC v. DOJ, EPIC made public formerly secret documents about the government’s use of pen registers to collect the records of private communications.
